Shree Maa’s Fig-Mint Chutney is a tasty relish that can be used to accent a meal of rice, dal, yogurt and vegetables. This recipe is a fresh chutney (not cooked), so it is meant to be eaten as a condiment on the day prepared. This chutney can also be served with bread, crackers, and other pastries.
